EIE paper club

Our EIE paper club is mandatory for all PhD, Master and Bachelor students doing a thesis with us. It is still open to anyone that wants to participate, but if you are doing a thesis with us you are supposed to participate in the discussion. This discussion will only happen once a month and it is going to be moderated by one of our Postdocs. The idea here is not to present a paper to you but rather to discuss it in a constructive way. Different Postdocs will also have different approaches and integrate discussions in different ways which will also enrich your skill set.

These paper club discussions will happen on the first Wednesday of the month at 2:30pm online, in person, or hybrid as indicated by the respected Postdoc. Three weeks before, the Postdoc responsible for that specific month will send the relevant paper(s) for discussion. You can always read more papers on the topic so we can have a more lively discussion.
